Sales Agent!

I'm proud to announce that Office Ninja will be partnering up with a sales agent, Legacy Pictures!  Under Ewan Bourne's expertise, they will be able to maximize my chances of finding better deals from distributors than when I was on my own.  This increases the ability to make some money back, but more importantly, give the movie the exposure it's hard-working, talented artists deserve.

Like film-making, the process of dealing with distributors takes time and patience.  I want to thank all my fans and curious followers for your loyalty, and I hope to reward my fellow ninjas with even better news in the near future.

In the meantime, I've been learning how to edit!  I've been an Assistant Editor on Beverly Hills Nannies, and just cut my first web series, Pairings, which debuts in October!

Indie Gathering Film Festival Results

Last weekend, Office Ninja had its first festival screening at the 16th Annual Indie Gathering Film Festival, in Hudson, Ohio.  Even though it was a Saturday morning, the turnout was very strong with tons of positive feedback.

In addition, I got to be a panelist for the first time!  Together with Avi Lasser, we talked about sound and film scoring.

On Sunday's award ceremony, it won an award for Feature Comedy.

Thank you Kristina and Ray for this wonderful opportunity.  I got to meet some really cool people from Ohio and the East Coast.  I got a reprieve from the ridiculous hot Los Angeles weather.  And I got to see some interesting indie flicks.  I really enjoyed Trailer Park Jesus, and adored Electro-Cute!
